Top Customer Reviews
Earth has very little to offer the other galactic powers other than a number of excellent mercenary companies, the foremost being the companies know as the Four Horsemen. The first 2 books by Mr. Wahlberg and Mr. Kennedy tell the stories of 2 of these companies which are being placed in crises by an alien culture bent on the ultimate destruction of Earth. While none of this really breaks any new ground, both books were excellent reads that I think fans of space opera will thoroughly enjoy.
Shuffled away, paid off (as long as he stayed out of trouble) and forgotten, “Never Is Good Enough” Nigel was less than saddened when his father, the CEO of mercenary company Asbaran Solutions, one of the storied “Four Horseman” was killed trying to complete a difficult contract.
Once the heir apparent, Nigel was never going to run the company, and his siblings had made it clear that they would as soon he never came near the company, lest his dishonor rub off.
But after his unlamented brother followed suit and then his sister (whom he did care about) was kidnapped and held for ransom, Nigel got didn’t just get mad, he was going to rescue his sister…and get even.
Chris Kennedy continues the Revelations Cycle, along with Dragon Award nominee Mark Wandrey. Their Four Horsemen mercenary companies hearken back to the “fun” science fiction days of Heinlein and Laumer. This isn’t highbrowed literature, but good-old-fashioned sci-fi. If that’s your cuppa, all the better. ( I like mine light with a touch a sweetener, and just enough bitter).
Wandrey’s Cartright grows through his journey in Book 1, Shirazi doesn’t grow as much as show facets that we don’t see in the initial stages of the book. They’re always there, but crisis brings them to the fore. The developing subplot has my attention and I’m curious now as to what’s really going on.
All in all, an entertaining book. I look forward to the final two installments. Write faster, gentlemen.
This book is darker toned and deals with the battles in a grittier, more fatalistic way. The protagonist is one of those too-stubborn-to-quit types, smart and talented but unmotivated until faced with a real challenge.
He grows as the story progresses from a stuck up trust fund kid with an attitude to a leader who really cares about his troops, and recognizes that if he doesn't shoulder his responsibilities, he's letting them down.
I eagerly await the remaining sequels!
Chris Kennedy’s military experience is evident in his attention to detail, both with the equipment used and the actual battles themselves. “Asbaran Solutions” has lots of action and movement that keeps the reader engrossed.
As a side note, you can “join the Red Shirts” on the author’s website and be killed off in one of his books. There were lots of characters in this story--it would be interesting to know how many of these characters were Red Shirts.

The protagonist deserved his nickname he really was worthless.
I did not enjoy the book enough to review it further.Read more
